The latest training camp scare: Elvis Dumervil

Elvis Dumervil clutched his right arm close to his chest, and walked slowly to the locker room Wednesday afternoon while the Broncos watched and held their breath.

The early report indicates the newly-signed pass rusher has a pectoral injury, with further tests being done on Thursday.  Dumervil was handed a deal that guaranteed him $43 million against injury just last month.

You don’t usually hear “pectoral” without “torn pectorals muscle” but hopefully for the Broncos Dumervil could avoid an injury that serious.  The team had no update on him Wednesday.

    Training camp injuries seem to be on the rise. And this is with limited contact. What’s going on?

    Have Tebow lay his hands on Elvis!!!!!!!
    Elvis may punch the shit out of him though.

    What about “strained pectoral muscle” or “pulled pectoral muscle”?

    Wow,,,that would be a huge blow for the donkeys

    He gets 43 mil if he never plays another snap due to serious injuries.
    2 nd biggest issue behin rookie wage scale. Some guaranteed money works, but half his contract seems silly unlesshe gets paralyzed.

    Reports seems to be not season ending. But that is from reporters, so……

    Wow. Talk about a huge blow the Denver D if he has a significant injury…
    Good thing they just inked him to an enormous deal.

    More coverage equals the appearance of more training camp injuries. They may actually be on the rise, but there’s no doubt we hear about injuries these days during camp that we wouldn’t have 10 or 15 years ago.

    Let’s see if Aaron Schoebel is on the speed dial in Denver.

    s-567: what a perfect name for a broncos fan. My thoughts exactly…how fitting.

  16. magsdad1 says: Aug 5, 2010 11:00 AM

    BTW, Michael Lombardi at Broncos camp is the one reporting not season ending. I figured I would show the source.

    what does s-567 mean i wanna laugh at someone too.
    I’m prepared for the anti-eagles jokes but tell me about the s567 first

    Contracts should include base salaries and heavy incentive packages. Players should receive pensions based on years of active service or settlements based on severity of injury.
    This would guarantee the best players the most money through quality of play and years of playing, and it would protect against injury. It would also prolong payments and give the players enough time to realize that they have to be wise with their money after football.

    Actually you don’t usually hear “pectoral” spoken in the same sentance as “Elvis”, but that’s another story.

    According to Thom Brennan “If you’re fortunate enough to spend five minutes or 20 minutes around Tim Tebow, your life is better for it.”

    Elvis got paid. Nuff said.
    Time to coast ala haynesworthless and jawalruss.

  22. breeze99 says: Aug 5, 2010 11:54 AM

    ESPN is reporting he is done for most or all of the season with a torn pectoral..

  23. breeze99 says: Aug 5, 2010 11:58 AM

    He is done for most, if not all of the 2010 season..
